All of my creative content, Lucifer's Well, more accessible pricing, and the Pay What You Can models are all supported by ongoing monthly patrons.
I offer several tiers to choose from - $1, $3, $5, $15, $25 and $50/month - structured loosely around the Green Bottle Sliding Scale Model, which is based on one's level of economic privilege, security, & access.
The middle bottle in the scale is correlated to the $5 and $15/month tiers.
Utilizing this model in absence of custom pledge amounts was the most equitable and politically congruent way for me to offer this.
ALL PATRONS RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:
Like many digital content creators, I have a Patreon account — in fact, I was a super early adopter of the site, and first used it back when it debuted in 2013, when its UX/UI was even more clunky and crappy than it is today.
Due to disagreements with management and the operational direction of Patreon, I later transitioned my recurring patronage to BuyMeACoffee...where I subsequently ran into issues with functionality (including patrons being able to easily change their tier level), and had to bail on them as a membership manager.
However, I recognize that people find these platforms convenient, and I have kept them running purely for convenience.
>>> THIS ACCOUNT IS RETIRED. <<<
I keep my account purely for convenience of supporters who wish to keep their pledges in one place. I do not update subscribers directly.
Gifts are one of my love languages: thoughtful, nurturing + nourishing, or imminently pragmatic for *my* life and needs. Thank you so much in advance for wanting to celebrate and honor me with such sweetness, and there are a number of specific ways I like to receive this care. The services listed have been chosen due to accessibility support, my physical wellness (massage/bodywork; cleaning support; food delivery; task support).
I have also included my P.O. Box for handwritten notes, and thoughtful, handmade gifts folks would like to share with me, especially BIPOC brands and artists. However, please be aware that I am sensitive or severely reactive to several allergens (inc. ferrets, shellfish, and latex; weird, but necessary to mention), and do not utilize alternative health consumer wellness products (CBD products, homeopathic remedies; does not include bath & skincare products) without the guidance & input of my healthcare team.
